"Chopped" is one of the few reality shows I have watched. It's a simple premise: four chefs are given a set of ingredients to prepare the first course of a meal.

The judges decide which of the chefs gets "chopped", and its down to three chefs preparing the second course. Again, someone gets chopped and the two finalists square off for the final course. The winner walk away with $10 grand!

Hennessey graduated from Le Cordon Blue at the Atlantic Culinary Academy 17 years ago. He opened "Stages at One Washington" in the One Washington Center building in 2012 serving what he describes as Progressive New England Cuisine.

From personal experience, I can tell you that dining at Stages is an experience you will not soon forget.
